CRY vs SHF Dream11 : Sheffield United look to register their first win of the 2019-20 edition of the Premier League when they take on a attackingly lopsided Crystal Palace outfit today
Out of all the three newly promoted sides in the Premier League for the 2019-20 season, gameweek 1 saw Sheffield United impress the most. They ended up coming out of their clash against Bournemouth with a 1-1 draw, crafting out an extremely resilient and resolute performance to shut out one of the most progressively attack minded outfits in the league.
It’s a result which is bound to have infused immense momentum into the new comers, a point they’ll be looking to treat as the foundation of a successful campaign in an extremely gruelling Premier League. And up against Crystal Palace today, the side will be looking to get their first three points as they take on a side who majorly disappointed against Everton.
Despite managing to hold onto Wilfred Zaha despite the leftwinger being embroiled in a massive transfer mess, the departure of Batshauyi and Arron Wan-Bissaka has massively dwindled the side’s attacking soirees. The side was clearly struggling to scramble together pinch perfect attacking sojourns in their league opener against Everton, playing out a drab 0-0 draw with the side.
It’s exactly this predicament which Sheffield United will be looking to build on when the two sides meet in the opening match of Sunday. Expect this to be a closely contested encounter, one where both the defences will rise to the fore and deliver decisive performances with the more clinical side infront of goal ending up as the winner today.

CRY vs SHF Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for CRY vs SHF Dream11
While Sheffield United will push for a cleansheet, Crustal Palace will head out looking to do the same. For all their fallings in the attacking side of things, the side were successful at the back, a well disciplined unit which ensured that they were able to survive Everton’s onslaught across the 90 minutes.
And someone who played a colossal role in that cleansheet was their goal-keeper, Vicente Guaita pulling off some stunning saves to keep his side in the match. He’s an astute shot stopper and should emulate that same resilient showing today as well.
Defenders for CRY vs SHF Dream11
What Sheffield United’s five at the back defence line affords them is the opportunity to not only quell opposite attacks but also convert into a three man defence with two wingbacks manning on opposite ends. It sees both the fullbacks in Enda Stevens and Geroge Baldock offer incredible value with the two bound to maraud their way up the pitch and find themselves involved in a majority of their side’s attacking soirees.
We are also bringing in John Egan from the centre of their defence while form Crystal Palace we have their won centreback, Martin Kelly come in for this one.
Midfielders for CRY vs SHF Dream11
He came off as a substitute in the previous encounter but is envisaged to start this one for Crystal Palace, seeing Wilfred Zaha become our first player to come into this facet. He’s their side best chance of finding a goal today, their most astute attacking player and captain Luka Milivojevic partners him for this one.
Ever since the advent of VAR, we have seen penalties decisions being increased, something which sees Milivojevic become a must have for this encounter. On penalty, corner and freekick duty for his side, the midfielder could easily see himself end up registering a goal or an assist today.
Elsewhere from the opposition it’s an entire trivalent which represents us with us roping in CAM Oliver Norwood, CDM John Lundstram and Callum Robinson for this one.
Strikers for CRY vs SHF Dream11
Although Billy Sharp opener Sheffield United’s account in the Premier League in the previous fixture, he’s still bound to sit this one out as a substitute, seeing us opt for the services of Oliver McBurnie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Oliver is our captain for today while Norwood is the vice-captain.
